Absorka-Beartooth Wilderness Area

I bring you dark forests, raging rivers, wild flowers, blue skies with billowing clouds and mountain streams cutting through forests all in the Absorka-Beartooth Wilderness Area.

The weather means everything here.

This shot is of the rain storm that came in while I had my back turned taking this first shot above of the storm heading for the Crazy Mountains. The weather dictates everything here in the spring with storms popping up all the time and sending people inside with thunder and lighting, heavy rain and harsh winds. One minute it is 75 degrees then half an hour later it could be 45 with rain. Love it!

Absorka-Beartooth Wilderness Area

I took a hike two Sunday's ago and went up a nice trail that my buddy Bollo and I would call a freeway.
It was into a fairly wild area so I kept up the noise on every turn so that I would not surprise any bears.
Of course this makes for lousy animal pictures as I scare them all away. Needless to say, I did manage to capture a few pretty pictures of the area and some flowers.
